Journal: Time to PAUSE, and DFS Progress (of sorts)

Journal by TTK Ciar

I got a PAUSE account!

As of today I am "TTKCIAR" at pause.perl.org, a full-fledged member of the open source perl community, and capable of contributing software to CPAN, the central repository of perl modules, for others to download and use! Exciting day!

I have a bunch of code to contribute too .. but there's one problem: most of it totally falls short of PAUSE's standards for contributed code.

This isn't precisely a pc on a chip (the core is MIPS-based), but Microchip's PIC32 offerings gives you a fully 32-bit processor with integrated RAM, ROM, and some peripherals for about $5 per unit. Perhaps not useful if you need x86, but plenty useful if you just want to compile and run ANSI-C applications (GCC has an appropriate MIPS target).

Privacy

+ - Giant browseable webcam database -- watching you?

Even though they are "public," could this ease of access lead to privacy issues? I can spy around Manhattan, Las Vegas, or even London. What happens when every beach and middle school is viewable in realtime from 1 billion+ web users?"

When you don't know what you are doing, do it neatly.
